School to investigate teen’s drowning in pool



WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — An investigation into the drowning of a student in the Wenatchee High School swimming pool will begin Monday, after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Wenatchee School District Superintendent Brian Flones told The Wenatchee World for a story Monday ( that staff members now are focusing on helping teachers and students deal with the death of freshman Antonio Reyes.

The 14-year-old was found dead Thursday in the school’s swimming pool. He had been with classmates in a swimming class, and students in the next swimming class found him in the pool. He could not be revived.

Flones says the swimming pool will be closed to physical education classes for the remainder of the semester, which ends in January. However, the pool will open for swim team members on Monday.
